Now is the time to renew your LVMQG Membership! Renew prior to January 1st, 2019 for $40; membership fee will increase to $45 on January 1st.
The December swap is a Fat Quarter Swap. If you remember last years swap, buy (or find in your stash) 2 yards of fabric, cut it into Fat Quarters and bring it to swap with your guild members. You take home 8 NEW fat quarters. We will do a Low Volume and a solid pastel swap. You can participate in one, both or neither.
The December Block Lottery is an Astricks Block. The tutorial can be found on Stash Bee (just click here!). Any solid background with black and white fabric for the asterisks. This is a slice and insert block similar to our very popular Modern Trees Block for November!
Bobbie provided a very informative education piece on bindings to give us tips and tricks to get perfect corners on our bindings. Some binding resources she recommended are: Marci Baker Quilt Binding, The Quilt Company, APQS and So Sew Easy.
Wishing you all finished Christmas Projects and time to sew for yourself!
